Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact A. M. Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from A. M. Appraisals actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's changing market.

Working with an agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very common) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you have been working with an accomplished agent , it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where A. M. Appraisals comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

An expert appraisal from A. M. Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown messes that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from A. M.
